Paramount to Continue ‘Cloverfield’ Story Theatrically Despite Netflix’s $50 Million Purchase of ‘Paradox’

As the dust settles on the surprise release of The Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix, we are beginning to learn more and more about the inner workings of the Paramount franchise and where it will go from here. While the sale of the third Cloverfield film to Netflix’s streaming platform provided the studio with some much-needed instant revenue, it is being reported that the franchise will continue in cinemas.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s sources say that Netflix paid Paramount more than $50 million for the rights to stream The Cloverfield Paradox. Negotiations reportedly began over the holidays and were finalized in January in time for the major Super Bowl stunt we all witnessed on Sunday. The sale means that Paramount likely thought they couldn’t earn at least $50 million at the domestic box office, and the movie’s low critical reviews and mixed fan reaction suggests they probably made the right choice to sell the movie. The studio still plans to bring the movie to China, so it will be interesting to see how The Cloverfield Paradox performs on an open market. read more

‘Cloverfield 4’ Reportedly Complete and Ready to Hit Theaters This October

Fans might go from “not much Cloverfield” to “a whole lotta Cloverfield” in just a few short months! In early January, we learned that the release date for the yet-to-be titled third entry in the Cloverfield franchise was delayed (again) to April of 2018. The original release date for that film was scheduled for way back in February of 2017. It then got pushed to October, 2017 and then February 2018 before landing on its final (?) release date this April. Now, according to a special report, the fourth Cloverfield film will hit theaters just six months after the third one premieres!

‘Cloverfield’ Spin-Off Release Date Moved Once Again; Will Now Debut in April 2018

There are very few things that you can count on in life, but one of them is that the still untitled Cloverfield 3 film (originally titled The God Particle) has once again moved its release date.  

HNN reported in July that Paramount Studios decided to move the film from October 2017 to February 2, 2018.  It was originally supposed to hit theaters in February of 2017.

In preparation for HNN’s Winter Movie Preview, Horror News Network contacted Paramount to confirm that the untitled film, with no poster or trailer with less than a month to go before its release date would indeed be released on February 2nd (and it appears that we weren’t the only ones wondering about this lack of promotional materials for the Cloverfield spin-off). read more

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ – Review

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ – Review

By Lynn Sorel

Rating: 9 out of 10

 

Synopsis: After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. 

 

Our Thoughts: ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ is exactly what J.J. Abrams said it is – a “spiritual successor” to 2008’s ‘Cloverfield.’ It is not a direct sequel, and the story picks up in a different state where, aside from it taking place in the same universe, the only obvious direct tie to the other film is the location name, which includes the word ‘Cloverfield.’ read more
